K Line Adds New RoRo Service on Thailand – Australia Route

Japan’s shipping company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has decided to enhance its RoRo service in Thailand – Australia trade by launching a new service route of anti-clockwise loop in addition to current existing clockwise loop.

Scheduled to be start in late November, the new service will offer two additional sailings per month, mid and end of the month position at Thailand’s Laem Chabang, according to K Line.

The rotation of the service will be Laem Chabang – Fremantle – Adelaide – Melbourne.

The weekly service sets sail every Saturday at Laem Chabang and has the following rotation: Laem Chabang – Townsville – Brisbane – Port Kembla – Melbourne – Adelaide – Fremantle.
